Boniato white sweet potatoes are a sweet potato with white flesh. They are popular in the Caribbean Islands.
When picking boniatos the most important thing is their hardness. Make sure they are hard with no mold. The skin and shape will always be irregular. The boniato can be stored in the pantry and can last up to 10 days if put in a cool, dry place.
Boniatos can be used as a substitute for any recipe that calls for sweet potatoes. You can stew them low and slow with pork or you can turn them into a mash with a bit of cream.
